I took a netmon trace of an openning session for a user who doesn't
already have a profile. The NT client is sending an NT Transact NT create
call with the flags value set to 0. 

If I read correctly the CIFS spec, the flags value should be 8 here.

I don't have an NT server to check against, so I'm curious of what an NTS
is doing in this case.
